As I said. Maybe everything doesn’t have to be so hard?
Maybe all we need to do is find our natural position in the world and then lean into it?
I know that’s easier said than done. I know it can be hard to feel that what we have, naturally, to give to the world is what the world needs from us the most.
I know that in a world that constantly advertises its vacancies for people who are prettier than we are, or smarter, or thinner, or richer, or faster or fleeter of foot than we’ll ever be, it is hard not to see ourselves as inadequate. Not to try to be some of those things that the world seems to want us to be.
But maybe you and I are wasting our precious time here trying to become something we aren’t?
Maybe that energy would be better employed working out who exactly we already are and what we can already do and then developing that? No matter what the world thinks?
Have a look at Rory McIlroy in the clip below. I wonder if those commentators would have seen then, what they see now?
To see things in the seed, that is genius – Lao Tzu
